Horseshoe Bend.

Horseshoe Bend

One of the most famous picture stops of the Colorado River. Located just south of Page. This is a free attraction. Bring water, as it is almost a mile from the parking lot to the lookout. Also, the crowds in the summer months can be heavy, so patience is a must. It is worth it!

[Mike Larson, 09/18/2018]

Famous photo-op has its own parking lot just off US 89, and a simple trail straight across the desert to the viewing spot. No guardrails, so don't walk too close to the edge.
